inspired by a book titled “Hope Is A Thing With Feathers”, the Lost Bird Project chronicles the life and death of five species of American birds that were once abundant in North America: The Passenger Pigeon, the Carolina Parakeet, the Great Auk, the Labrador Duck, and the Heath Hen. The book goes into great depth on each species, their habits and habitat, and their natural history in the Americas. If you are a bird lover, you will no doubt really enjoy this book. (We recommend it!). And that is all the more reason to see the film, which weaves natural history with the story of artist Todd McGrain. Truly a beautiful film.
